If you say the area of, say, a patio is 144 square feet (sq ft), that's the same as saying the area is 144 feet squared (ft2). However, if you hear somebody say a patio is 12 feet square-- not squared -- he may be telling you the patio is a perfect square that measures 12 feet on each edge. The area is still 12 x 12 = 144 sq ft, so be careful. If you're not sure what is meant, ask! By the way, I am starting to see the convention of abbreviating square feet as sq ft, without the periods. I like that move! You'll have to use whatever convention your teacher or boss says to use, but when it's up to you, I recommend omitting the periods.
